Low Cut Connie

Low Cut Connie was recently called “the essence of what rock n roll should be” by Greg Kot
(Sound Opinions / NPR)..and the New York Times has said “their live show is a phenomenon.”
They have been a rolling DIY caravan with an explosive live act bubbling under the surface of
the music industry for 5 years, building an obsessive fanbase from all walks of life...white and
black, straight and gay, young and old...salty lunatics of every persuasion. Even former
President Barack Obama is a fan. He chose their anthem of low-brow American life
“Boozophilia” for his Spotify Playlist and met with Weiner at the White House in 2016.
But with Dirty Pictures (part 1), Low Cut Connie moves beyond the drunken bar boogie they
have become associated with into a deeper, darker, dirtier American life.
“We’ve been thought of as a great party band by so many people, and we wear that as a badge
of honor, but I really wanted to go deeper with this record.” Weiner said recently. “We’ve been
travelling this country now for a number of years, meeting people of all stripes, entertaining
them in their bars and sleeping on their couches, laughing hard, holding them tight and sweating
it out with them...I wrote this record really thinking about how people are feeling and living in this
country these days. It’s a wild scene out there.”
And what is it that best brings Americans together in such wild and dirty times? Weiner has a
simple answer: “Rock n roll. Nothing moves people more...it’ll make the most unsuspecting
citizen hot, horny, angry, weepy and emotional and ultimately open to life like never before. I’ve
seen it happen. That’s what we do. We change the molecules in the room.”
Whether they succeed or not, Low Cut Connie always attempts to make us feel something real,
something very raw. With Dirty Pictures (part 1), this little rock n roll band from Philadelphia
attempts to undress America, laughing and crying real tears with us all night long.
